A deep exploration of iconic photographer and former TSJ photo editor Jeff Divine’s endless catacombs of plenty, centered solely around perhaps surfing’s most influential, monumental, and pined-after decade. The film photographs collected here, taken throughout California and on the North Shore of Oahu, combine to create both a visual document of the era’s heroes and heroines, and offers an insider portrait of the era’s close-knit culture. When the grid goes down, we’ll be paging through by the light of the fire.

148 pages. Featuring a foreword by William Finnegan, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Barbarian Days. Designed and edited by Tom Adler and Evan Backes.

Available in Limited Edition signed by Jeff Divine and Standard.
